hi, thanks for replying. i gone through the link the posted. i am still using the 8.1 ubunto. the following is an instruction i follow :
WLanafter typing that into terminals the following appears :
Wireless does not work out of the box but can be brought to life easily. The most simple way is to install ath5k, the new open source driver for Atheros chipsets. It got removed from the stock Intrepid kernel because it was not stable on some systems. I do not have any problems so my recommendation for the Aspire One is to use this driver. To activate ath5k, deactivate the proprietary driver "Atheros wireless card" (System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers) that Ubuntu tries to use and install the package "linux-backports-modules-intrepid"
sudo aptitude install linux-backports-modules-intrepidWireless will work after a reboot.
Dpkg was interrupted. You must manually run ‘dpkg –configure –a’ to correct the problem.can anyone tell me what does this mean?
